A moving and thoughtful play about ‘human beings’, the passing of time, accepting the passing of the years and the need to empathize with seniors


Es tan lindo saber que usted existe aims to use contemporary dance to yield to, research, create and reflect on ‘being a human’: a subject and body that’s constantly transforming, bringing with it permanent changes and ways of re-adapting to a new existential territory. Created by Sebastián de la Cuesta (Migrante, Playa negra), this piece is a small tribute to the many older people who both feel and are invisible in today’s capitalist society. “We want to suggest a hypothesis about what being a citizen means today and to promote the idea of always putting yourself in someone else’s place - in other words, empathy”, says its director. The play’s cast includes outstanding figures from the national performing arts scene: Paulina Mellado, Francisca Sazié, Rodrigo Pérez, Manuel Peña and Raúl López. Cristián Reyes’ set design includes a multimedia display of projections, sound and lighting. Es tan lindo saber que usted existe was developed at Espacio Checoeslovaquia and was directed by De la Cuesta, with Rodrigo Leal in charge of the play’s lighting.
